Brad Pitt, his made a joke about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepping down for their roles as senior members of the Royal Family during his acceptance speech for the Best Supporting Actor BAFTA  awards on Sunday evening.

Despite being absent from the ceremony due to family obligations, the 56-year-old Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star had his award accepted by co-star Margot Robbie.

Picking up Pitt’s award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his performance as Cliff Booth in the Quentin Tarantino film, Margot read out his amusing acceptance speech.

Robbie read out his speech, which says: “Hey Britain, I heard you just became single. Welcome to the club.”

He also added: ‘Wishing you the best with the divorce settlement’, blah blah blah”

The joke comes following the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union on January 31.

After giving his thanks to his fellow cast members, crew, and director Quentin Tarantino, along with appreciating for BAFTA, he also had another zinger.

“He also said that he’s gonna name this Harry because he’s really excited about bringing it back to the States with him,” revealed Margot.

She added: “His words not mine!”

Watch the whole thing go down here:

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were then seen laughing awkwardly in the audience after the remark was made.
